Guess what, an industrious Chinese company called LeGuo has released an all new iPhone 5 knockoff ahead of the Apple event later today. The phone has no name, but it takes the two-tone iPhone design that’s been revealed in drips and drabs over the past few months, and has a larger 4-inch screen, a smaller dock connector and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich system. The best part? It has “Siri”. More photos after the break.
It’s available in both black and white models.
It’s not a mockup at all.
On the right side is an iPhone 5 mockup.
The front-facing camera is also located dead center of the phone.
And there’s home button. Take note the headphone jack, larger speaker grille and the smaller dock connector on the bottom.
On the top, there’s only a power button, headphone port is moved from the top of the phone to the bottom of the device.
Here’s something funny. The iPhone 5 knockoff features a micro SIM slot, not a nano-SIM slot that we see on the iPhone 5 mockup.
The build quality looks satisfactory.
It features a two tone back panel design, however, the manufacturer has not yet decided what logo to put on the back panel.
Turn it on, and it runs Android but look and act more like iOS.
Motifications appear with a bar that slides down from the top. Epic.
And Siri is included in the phone.
And the built-in Camera app looks very similar to iPhone’s default Camera app.
Press the Home button twice to bring up the multitasking menu bar.
Yeah, it runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Not Jelly Bean.
Looking at the Settings.
It runs Android 4.0.4.
It comes with some Chinese-language apps.
Disabling the iPhone theme on the device, it’s basically an Android phone that looks a lot like Apple’s iPhone 5. For more photos, check out the gallery below.
